My Review:
Marc & Wade own a security company. They are hosting a party and have hired India as their caterer. When Wade runs into India in the elevator, he doesn't realize who she is, but he knows that she's extremely sexy. In fact, there is a mutual attraction between all three of these people that is an immediate thing at their first meeting. 

But for India, this is a no-go. For one thing, these guys are 10 years younger than her and way out of her league (in her opinion.) She also thinks that they are gay partners so there is no way that they would be interested in her. She's most definitely wrong...in several regards!

I loved reading Wade & Marc's debate on approaching India. They are both drawn to her, but not sure what she would think about a menage relationship. Add to that, they are trying to build a reputation for their business and not sure how a menage relationship would affect that. Wade is the much more aggressive and impulsive of the two and thinks that it's all worth the risk. Marc is much more reserved and logical. While this is their basic personalities, I love how this translated into their feelings when they did become involved with India...I love how intense Marc becomes....so sexy.

India's inner-dialogue is priceless. She is overwhelmed by the sex appeal of this two hot young guys.

She called one of the owners of the company a smart ass. Closing her eyes, she tried to pretend she wasn't there. Maybe it was all a dream. A big, bad nightmare of how her day could go.

Holy Mother of God! She took a sip of her wine and tried to fight the blush in her cheeks. Just when did India Singer start thinking of men as fuckable? Granted, he was. So was Wade for that matter- big time. It figured she'd have thoroughly inappropriate thoughts about men who were gay. Especially both of them together.

I really had only one issue with the book. All three of these people voiced concerns over how a menage relationship might affect how their newly formed businesses. Regardless of that, after one weekend together, they were all-in. It just seemed a bit sudden to me when there were concerns about others' perceptions of them. But with that aside, this was a fun little erotic read!
